Praising God, Serving others, Growing in faith

Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Committee strives to nurture and care for all who attend FPC.

There are times in our lives when it is challenging to perform some of life’s routine tasks.  As a church family, we strive to help each other through these difficulties.  The Share the Care program offers assistance with rides to appointments, yard care, household chores, etc. for those temporarily unable to perform these tasks.

Through its Audio Recording program, the committee provides CD recordings of Sunday worship to those unable to attend.  These are available for checkout in the lobby outside of the church offices.  For home delivery of audio recordings, please contact the church office.

The Flower Ministry team gives their time and talents each week to create floral arrangements from the chancel flowers.  These bouquets are delivered to church members in need of cheer or kindness and to let them know they are thought of, prayed for, and loved during a time of challenge or celebration.

Care that is felt, and then expressed, is like fruit from the vine that delights the heart, nourishes the spirit, and brings needed strength to the soul. Sending a greeting card that expresses the thoughts of your heart is a tangible way of showing your care. Our Card Ministry recognizes important occasions and times of need to special groups, such as our college students and military service members/veterans who receive words of encouragement and loving messages.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry was started in 2007 as way to give comfort and prayer to those at FPC going through difficult times.  The recipient of the shawl is prayed for as it is knitted or crocheted, and a final blessing is offered as the shawl is presented.

Anyone interested in knitting or crocheting a prayer shawl may join this group on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. in the parlor.

The Reception Committee host funeral receptions and provide meals for members of the church and their extended families. Receptions provide a place of hospitality for families and friends to gather, share, reminisce and remember the life of their loved one.

The Partner Program partners new church members with long-time members.  Existing members provide support, knowledge and encouragement to new FPC members as they grow in faith and fellowship here.

Our Home Communion ministry provides communion to those who are not able to attend church on Communion Sunday. Elders of the church serve communion as an extension of the communion service at church.

If you would like to participate in any of our ministries or if you have a need that you would like to discuss in confidence, please contact our church office at (865) 966-9547 or fpc@tds.net.
